The Reader 48 is here!

Written by The Reader, 27th November 2012

The final issue of The Reader magazine for 2012 has arrived and what a cracker it is, just in time for the festive season. Not only does it have a beautiful new cover, an original work titled 'Aussie Outback', by Cheshire artist Michael Troy, but it is packed with literary gems to last you through these cold months.

In Issue 48, you can enjoy:

  • US 'soldier poet' Brian Turner, author of 'The Hurt Locker', as the Poet on His Work
  • An extract from Howard Jacobson's brand new novel, Zoo Time
  • 'Imagining the Patient', a thought provoking interview about literature and medicine with Iona Heath, the outgoing President of the Royal College of GPs
  • To mark its one year anniversary, Professor Philip Davis sets out a manifesto for the pioneering work carried out by the Centre for Research into Reading, Information and Linguistic Systems
  • New poetry from Andrew McNeillie, Chris Hardy, Emma Curran, Melissa Lee-Houghton and Sarah Lindon.

All this, on top of the usual great features from Brian Nellist, Angela Macmillan, and Casi Dylan, humour from Ian McMillan, and the diaries of The Reader Organisation, which includes 'Poetic Justice: A Narrative of Belfast Breakthroughs' from Patricia Canning.

If you are already a subscriber to the magazine, then your brand new issue should be arriving through your letterbox in the next couple of days. If not, why not?! You can take out a full year's subscription, or purchase the single issue, on our website.

Have yourself a readerly Christmas!
